Black-Capped Chickadee

The birdfeeder experiment is going well.

We have black-capped chickadees!  You all know about my love of chickadees.

The Chestnut-Backed Chickadees make little chirping noises that are very cute.  But these Black-Capped Chickadees go “chick-a-dee-dee-dee”!  They’re so precious.

You can see that at the top of the feeder, I’ve been adding the cockatiel food.  Since my guys are picky eaters, I figure I can recycle the food by putting it in the feeders.  It’s always so funny to see outdoor birds enjoying brightly colored pellets.

This group of chickadees came in a swirl of feathers to eat at the feeder.  I haven’t seen them since that one day, but I hope they come back.

I’ve seen plenty of chickadees while birding, though, so if they don’t come back all is not lost.

    More great pictures; especially where the it’s gripping the feeder, pumping it’s little wings. I love chickadees too; I miss their song and they’re so cute.
